No matter your business or position, you can apply Marquet's
radical guidelines to turn your own ship around. The payoff- a
workplace where everyone around you is taking responsibility for
their actions, where people are healthier and happier, where
everyone is a leader.
L. David Marquet, a top graduate of the US Naval Academy, commanded the nuclear-powered, fast-attack submarine USS Santa Fe from 1999 to 2001, transforming it from the worst-performing submarine in its fleet to the best. Since retiring from the navy, Marquet has worked with businesses nationwide as a leadership consultant. He gives presentations around the world about his acclaimed first book, Turn the Ship Around- A True Story of Turning Followers into Leaders.
I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership
than Captain Marquet. And in the pages that follow you will find a
model for your pathway * Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits
of Highly Effective People *
To say I'm a fan of David Marquet would be an understatement . . . I'm a fully fledged groupie. He is the kind of leader who comes around only once a generation. He is the kind of leader who doesn't just know how to lead, he knows how to build leaders. His ideas and lessons are invaluable to anyone who wants to build an organization that will outlive them * Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why *
